The soft magnetic composite (SMC) materials and their application in electromagnetic devices have undergone significant development due to their unique advantages, such as low eddy-current loss, quasi-isotropy of mechanical and magnetic properties, low cost, and low material consumption during the production process. However, the magnetic properties of the SMC materials are very different from that of the laminated SiFe materials, which are particularly challenging for the design and application of electrical machines. This paper presents the modeling and measurement of magnetic properties of the SMC materials under both alternating and rotational magnetic excitations. Based on the underlying magnetization mechanisms, a vectorial elemental operator with biaxial anisotropy is introduced, and the concept of distribution function is utilized to describe the density of operators in the specimen. To verify this proposed model, the magnetic hysteresis of the SMC material is simulated and compared with the experimental results obtained by the three-dimensional magnetic property measurement system. The good agreement shows the validity and practicability of this vectorial elemental operator.
